Weekend Update: October 3-4, 2015

fallsbooks1Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by John Clark (Monday), Kate Flora (Tuesday), Maureen Milliken (Wednesday), Kaitlyn Dunnett/Kathy Lynn Emerson (Thursday) and Brenda Buchanan (Friday).

In the news department, here’s what’s happening with some of us who blog regularly at Maine Crime Writers:

From Kaitlyn Dunnett: The paperback of Ho-Ho-Homicide is now in stores. The paperback reprint of the previous year’s title is always a sure sign the next book is coming soon in hardcover. In this case, it’s The Scottie Barked at Midnight, publication date October 27. Look for giveaways in my Thursday post. There’s also a blog about the Scotties at Hobby Reads

Meanwhile, the ebook edition of my Halloween book, Vampires, Bones and Treacle Scones, is on sale for $1.99 until November 4.  Here are the links you can use:
